Ok once again Im going to post and talk a little bit on how vitamin D3 has changed my li e
I started taking about 5000 iu a day when I was bleeding so bad I was about to go to the hospital.
A ter trying almost every other drug with no help I started taking D3 and in 3 or 4 days all the bleeding had stopped.
3 weeks I got all my energy back and one month per ect stools. I never thought I was ever depressed until I knew how good I
could really start to eel.
Its been about 6 months and here is my diet today;)
morning two toasts with cream cheese and a large co ee
lunch, spam sandwhich cheese and 4 cookies huge bowl o chips with tons garlic cheese dip.
hot coco
around dinner was 5 beers and a whole box o cookies, no joke.
I have never in my whole li e been able to eat like this i I did I would get the runs the next day and start to bleed in about 3 days.
Be ore taking vitamin D3 I could not ever go o the SCD diet or I would be sick.
I know its the D3 because i have tried going o o it or one day and I could just eel it coming back.
Please I would like to know i anyone else Is trying this?

I have never been able to eat like this my whole li e and Im gaining weight like Oprah Winfrey!
Sorry or the missing letter I dont know why i cant type it, my computer is crashing.

Mthboard this is like your third post on the same subject. Can we please keep bumping up your other post instead of re creating the same message. Thanks for your understanding.

As I said before I found that the additional Vitamin D has helped my fibro pain alot, but have not really noticed any changes with my Crohns. But of course, I was already in remission.

Hi, i have been and got this today from my local health shop only one tub left on the shelf! apparently a local doc has been sending his patients round to them to get this I will give it a go I must state though when researching it on the web it did state:

Medication Interactions
Like many supplements, vitamin D3 has the potential to interact with prescription medications. Talk with your doctor about the risks of consuming this supplement when taking steroids, weight loss drugs and seizure medications.

So those people in that catagory need to run it by there doc.

Thanks for telling us of your experience and i hope it works for me too! Bev x

Totally off topic, but mthboards - is there something wrong with your "F" key?

It's pretty easy to order online and maybe cheaper as well. I live in Taiwan and vitamin D is ridiculously expensive here for some strange reason (ironically, prescription drugs are much cheaper, go figure), which is why I order it from abroad. I've bought vitamin D3 twice online from two different companies:

I don't doubt that there are others just as good, but these are the two I've ordered from and they've been reliable. Although I don't live in the USA (where these two companies are located), they've been able to ship internationally at reasonable cost. I definitely got faster delivery from iherb (one week, via DHL) than from Puritan (three weeks, they use Deutsche Post).

I'm not taking D3 for my Crohn's, but rather for flu protection. From what I've read, the whole reason why flu is so much more severe in winter is because we don't get enough sunlight on our skin seeing how we're all bundled up against the cold. Researchers are finding that D3 is more important than they have previously thought. Women entering menopause (that's not me) especially need a lot of D3 to prevent osteoporosis. Hard to say what the correct dosage should be, but right now I'm taking 5000 IU of D3 per day.
